Asra is a Manchester based abstract expressionist artist with a Bachelor’s in Fine Arts. Her work is about the chaotic love of motherhood and serves as a grounding, meditative practise for her. Using a variety of tools like cups, palette knives, brushes etc., Asra splashes paint onto a canvas in a way she can’t fully control. In doing so, she gets into a negotiation with paint: A power struggle where the choice of colours is structured and deliberate but the textures and marks are spontaneous, raw and free. This liberates her work from conventional restraints as she asks the question: “Who’s really in control: the paint or me?”

She paints in acrylics on canvas or paper with contrasting cheerful and moody colours. Her aim is to create immersive paintings that people can’t help but gaze at and notice a new stroke, texture or detail in every day. Asra’s paintings have been purchased and collected privately worldwide with works livening up homes in London, Manchester, Sydney, Calgary and Dubai.
